Being childless is a curse. Short stories on mental health is a story about Lakshmi would conceive even after 10 years of her marriage.
“Children complete a woman. I agree! But for a woman who couldn’t be a mother, what is her life? how would people react and comment on you? I am more scared of people and how they would comment on me.”
It was after our first year of marriage, we started getting questions about kids and yes, even we were excited to receive those questions and get involved in those talks. It was all fun when they used to tease me that love is in the air, the honeymoon is not over yet, and all.
Seriously they did not matter to me, but I was just in the flow.
In the 2nd and 3rd years of our marriage, these fun talks became serious and more like pointing out my character. Yes, people like them do exist! And when we finally decided to check with the doctor, we received an unexpected answer.
We are both not much fertile naturally and so we were not able to get pregnant. I am glad that my husband and my immediate family were always with me. We decided to go ahead and try out the IVF method to get pregnant.
During the process
I have gone through much pain. It seems that my body wasn’t taking well with the medication. My body became so weak that we decided to stop any further medication that would weaken my health more.
From then on, seeing my conduction, my mental state my family and my husband decided that having kids is not always the priority and not the only thing in life.
With the help of my family even I came out of depression. I am thankful to my family and my husband who has always been by my side and no matter what dint let anyone affect my mental state again.
This is a simple fiction story about how small things matters for Mental Health. How family comes to rescue us from being further drowning in depression.
In this series, I would write about more such fiction stories in which small elements would help the character into a better state of mind.
